Back to Inspirations
What's your idea of the perfect autumn break? A cosy bolthole serving good food and wine, where you can pull up an armchair by a roaring log fire and watch the weather close in beyond the windowpane? A quaint country cottage where you and your loved one can shut the door on the world for a while and enjoy complete privacy? A luxurious hotel, where you can eat breakfast in bed amid the softest linen sheets, only rising to pop to the spa for a spot of indulgent pampering? However you like to relax on an autumn break, here are a few inspiring suggestions.
Aikenshill House

Blow the cobwebs away and fill your lungs with fresh sea air on walks along the dunes of Balmedie beach on Scotland's north-east coast. This charming farmhouse puts you just minutes away from the seashore. It's an attractive choice - the property has been refurbished to offer four en-suite bedrooms for visitors who like to embrace the country in style.

Hidden River Cabins

Be at one with nature at these three luxuriously appointed log cabins sleeping six, set on their own stretch of the River Lyne, deep in the Cumbrian countryside. Cycling, walking and fishing are on the agenda here. There are bikes for hire, a boot room for your wellies, even a freezer awaiting your catch. Or you could just relax in the hot tub on the terrace.

Brooklands Hotel

One for petrolheads. A car racetrack runs through reception at this sleek 120-room Art Deco-inspired hotel set on one of Britain's most famous historic circuits. Book a room or suite with a view of the track and imagine the scene in Brooklands' heydays of the 1920s and 1930s. Fancy getting in the driving seat yourself? Pop next door to Mercedes World.
